Tried both of those versions, with the same problem. Right now I just
have to try and remember to remove the modules after I shut down the
computer and then re-run hsfconfig to rebuild them next time I want to
connect, but this is far from ideal (I'm assuming hsfconfig is inserting
these modules in a way that doesn't cause this to happen, would it be
possible to do the same order of module insert at boot time?). There are
some other versions of module-init-tools that are easily available for
gentoo as well that I could try (0.9.15_pre4 and 3.0_pre5). 3.0 was the
original version I was using.

I haven't experienced that problem again. I think it occurred after I
removed all the hsf modules after disconnecting and leaving the machine
on for a while. I doubt I will be doing that often, but if I experience
this again I'll send you the output from hsfconfig --dumpdiag. Probably
wouldn't be very helpful though if the hsf modules aren't loaded?
